Founded in 2010, the Aboriginal Education Council (AEC) was created to promote a positive educational experience and success of Aboriginal students at Laurier. The AEC is comprised of university administrators, faculty, students and Aboriginal community members. It is committed to developing and supporting Aboriginal educational aspirations through curriculum, programs, services and research at Laurier that meet the needs of both the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students, faculty and staff at Laurier.
The AEC assists and advises Laurier in identifying and articulating priorities for programs and services intended to increase the successful recruitment, retention and graduation of Aboriginal students. The AEC provides leading advice regarding priorities for allocation of government and institutional funding for Aboriginal initiatives.
"The Office of Aboriginal Initiatives is committed to having Laurier be an extraordinary and empowering experience for all Aboriginal students. We believe that education, in a welcoming environment, that honours Indigenous people, is the path for our people to be all that we can be. We are here to assist you in all areas of life as students and to ensure you have the best student experience that university can offer."
